New Boise State basketball commit Casdon Jardine won a 4A state championship at Twin Falls High in 2014 before going on his LDS mission. He will join the Broncos for the 2017-18 season.

College of Southern Idaho freshman Casdon Jardine, a 6-foot-7 forward from Twin Falls, signed his national letter of intent with Boise State on Wednesday afternoon. He initially committed to the Broncos on Oct. 5.

“Casdon is a big, strong, skilled player,” Boise State head coach Leon Rice said. “With losing Nick Duncan, we needed a guy with size who could shoot it. Casdon fills that need and will be a great addition to our system. He has a winning pedigree and comes from a program we have a lot of respect for.”

Jardine led Twin Falls High to the 4A state title in 2014. He spent the last two years in Brazil on his LDS mission before returning to Idaho in the summer. He is averaging 8 points and 7.5 rebounds per game through two games for the Golden Eagles, and will join Boise State next season as a sophomore.

Jardine’s older brother, Brady, played at Utah State from 2009-12.

“The picture was painted very clearly that Boise State was the right place for me,” Jardine said when he committed in October. “It’s a winning program and I look forward to being part of something big.”

Former Boise State guard Montigo Alford, who was recently drafted by the Reno Bighorns of the NBA’s Developmental League, attended CSI from 2011-14. Redshirt senior guard James Reid also played for the Golden Eagles from 2012-14.
